It's not to bad if you think about it.  You just walk
the tree, stepping back up once you've done a leaf node.
In fact, I've got an ace bit of C code that does just

No need.  Besides, thats too complicated.
Whatever code is written to handle the Cluster Image
also provides methods to read and write entries to
the image.  The implementation details are hidden from
all other areas of the system.

If you want to get something out of the image, you
invoke the appropriate method (which is a GWService

The parameters that are passed to methods (GWServices)
have to be consistent though, particularly if some
GWServices are perl and others are C/C++ or whatever!

The way you design/implement stuff using middleware
message calls will become much clearer when I release
the Domain'ed version of Goldwater and the BASE
architecture for the CM... something for everyone
to look at.

Coming soon.... gimme a week-10 days....
